Covid-19 Hospitalizations Rising In North, Falling In South, And The Media Is Silent

Daily Wire

The states with falling COVID-19 hospitalizations are mostly in the south, and the states with rising hospitalizations are mostly in the north. All the while, the media is ignoring the change, when they spent all summer blasting Govs. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Greg Abbott (R-TX) for supposedly mishandling the pandemic.

National Review’s Jim Geraghty noted the trend on Thursday, while pointing out that just “four states had double-digit percentage increases in the COVID-19 hospitalization rate.” That would be Michigan and New Hampshire, each with a 25% increase in hospitalizations over the past two weeks; Minnesota with a 15% increase; and Colorado with a 14% increase. Five more states had single-digit increases: Alaska, Montana, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, and Wyoming.

As for the southern states that suffered over the summer, they showed a drastic decrease in hospitalizations. From Geraghty:

In every other state, the number of people in the hospital with COVID-19 went down – and in some cases, dramatically. Tennessee saw hospitalizations decline 32 percent over the past two weeks, Georgia and Texas both saw 34 percent declines, Mississippi was at 35 percent, Alabama was at 36 percent, South Carolina was at 38 percent, Florida was at 39 percent, Louisiana was at 42 percent, and Hawaii enjoyed an astounding 48 percent drop in the number of people in the hospital with COVID-19. The Delta variant wave has passed through the southern parts of the country, and thankfully, COVID-19 patients are leaving the hospitals.
